In Reply to: James William McKay/MacKay by Alana McKay-Gross of 986

I am looking for a James Mackay b.3 Apr 1867 Riggend,Scotland. James mother was Jane Shearer Taylor b.15 Mar 1847 Dalziel,Scotland. I do not know if Jane Taylor married James`s father-Mackay.
Jane did married 16 Feb 1971 Dalziel,Scotland to a James Reid b.19 Dec 1852 Glasgow,Scotland.
Jane had a daughter Margaret Kerr 25 Feb 1869 Dalziel,Scotland. And it is believed Jane did marry Margarets father Archibald Kerr in Dalziel,Scotland.

Jane had 12 children with James Reid.
In the 1881 Census of Bathgate - Whitburn Scotland there was the James Reid and Jane, with her son James Mackay as
Jas Mackay Reid as Stepson and Margaret Kerr Reid Stepdaughter. And five more children of their own together.
Would it be possible in them times that Janes two children were adopted to James Reid, or would it be that they just put Reid as their last name?

If any of this means anything to you I would appreciate hearing from you! Kind Regards
